Getting to Victoria Falls

Helicopter flight over Victoria Falls.
Victoria Falls marks the border between southwestern Zambia and northwestern Zimbabwe. The best, and easiest way to get there is by air, with Siyabona Africa.

Travelling with Siyabona Africa

Unless you are flying directly to Livingstone International in Zambia, from your own country - you will in all liklihood be flying a connecting flight from Johannesburg or Cape Town.

All our safari tours and holiday packages INCLUDE flights and transfers from these two cities.

Driving Yourself

This road map details the main roads to Victoria Falls from Zimbabwe and Botswana.
Be advised to check on fuel availabilities along your route. Zimbabwe is not particularly reliable in ensuring that gas stations can actually re-fuel your vehicle.

When to Go

This depends on what you want. Between April and June the water flow is greatest, the gorge heavily misted, the rainforest wet and rainbows appear overhead. The volume is lowest from September to November and the view of the Falls very clear. However from October onwards it can get very hot and humid, particularly during the rains (November and March).Water volume also determines the type of rafting experience you will have. During low water times some of the rapids get quite cheeky (Class 4 or 5 on a 6-point scale) and they're a bit more friendly when the waters are high. There are half day, full day and 3 - 8 day rafting trips. They start and finish at different points and the climb out on the shorter runs is demandingly steep. Establish what you want before booking.
